OfficeFIX : Recover Damaged Microsoft Access, Word, Excel and Outlook Files

Using Microsoft Office to create and read Office documents is a everyday task for many of us. When you are opening one of these Office documents, Microsoft Office might show an error that the document is corrupt or invalid. This is because that document has become corrupt due to file system error or other similar storage related problems. While Microsoft Office does try to recover such files, it may or may not work all the time.

Fortunately, there is a third party tool called OfficeFIX that can be used to fix all the corrupt Office documents. It comes with four separate tools that can fix corrupt Word documents, Access databases, Excel worksheets, and Outlook emails. In the user interface, you can pick one of the tools and follow the on-screen instructions to fix all the corrupt files. Using its wizard like user interface it is very easy-to-use for users of all levels.


The tools included in OfficeFIX are WordFIX, AccessFIX, ExcelFIX and OutlookFIX for fixing the corrupt documents related to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook respectively. These tools can fix the files created by all versions of Microsoft Office starting from Office 2.0 (which was released in 1992) to Office 2019 and Office 365. Because it supports files created by these very old versions of Office, it is great for fixing archived older documents if they have become corrupted over time.

Even though OfficeFIX has a very high successful recovery rate, it is not able to recover 100% damaged data. During the recovery process, it searches for all the files created by Microsoft Office, attempts to read them as much as possible and then writes what has been recovered to completely new, error-free files.

Conclusion: OfficeFIX is a small and useful tool for fixing the Microsoft Office related files that have become corrupt because of many reasons. It can fix documents related to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook.
